    Very Rare AU50 Noe-8 Oak Tree Shilling
    From the Brand, Wurtzbach, Boyd, Ford Collections

    1652 SHILNG Oak Tree Shilling AU50 PCGS. Ex: Ford. IN at bottom. Crosby 5-A, Noe-8, High R.6. 71.4 gn. The plate coin in both the Noe and Wurtzbach references, and the only example of Noe-8 within the Ford collection. The Garrett, Roper, Oechsner, and Picker collections all lacked this variety.
    A steel-gray example that has powder-blue and golden-brown undertones. The overall strike is good, with selected softness on the very top of the tree and on a few letters of the upper peripheral legends. An edge flaw at 12 o'clock is as made, and a straight clip at 3 o'clock affects the tops of two letters. Faint marks just above the tree were probably on the planchet before the strike. Listed on page 37 of the 2009 Guide Book. Combined PCGS population for all Oak Tree shilling varieties: 13 in 50, 28 finer (6/08).
    Ex: Heman Ely Collection (W.E. Woodward, 1/1884), lot 1000; Mills Collection (Lyman Low, 1/1910), lot 12; DeWitt Smith; Virgil Brand; Carl Wurtzbach; T. James Clarke; F.C.C. Boyd; John J. Ford, Jr. Collection, Part 12 (Stack's, 10/2005), lot 29.

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
